Our Specialists

Patient-Centered Professionals

Geisinger's Rheumatology Specialists are internal medicine physicians with fellowship training in treating complex rheumatic diseases. Our Rheumatologists consistently score very high marks in our patient satisfaction surveys-sometimes reaching higher than 99% of all other rheumatologists across the country. You'll also find Geisinger rheumatologists who have received the national "Best Doctors" award year after year.

Patients benefit from our multidisciplinary team approach, which includes rheumatologists (physicians specialty-trained to diagnose and treat inflammatory arthritis and immune disease), clinical nurse educators, and other support personnel as needed (physical and occupational therapists, social service counselors, medication authorization and support experts).

Each of these medical professionals is dedicated to providing you with leading edge care. We partner with you, particularly in choosing treatment options that meet your ongoing medical needs.

Attracting the Best and Brightest

Geisinger's reputation in treating rheumatic diseases allows us to attract high quality medical residents to complete their fellowships here. The program is dedicated to training the best of the next generation of rheumatologists.
